carving pumpkins.

I absolutely love holidays. and all of the activities + fun that go along with them. I’m also big into holiday traditions. and although [J] & I don’t have a family yet ..it doesn’t hurt to create traditions a little early, as a family of two.

one of our favorite halloween activities is pumpkin carving. of course. we select our pumpkins, set aside a night, open a bottle of wine, and get to work creating our masterpieces. last year we decided to jump on board the craze, and instead of carving ..we painted. see our pumpkins here.

this year we took it up another notch: painting + carving.

the first thing I did was: cover my pumpkin in stars + swirls. using black puffy paint. and while I let it dry, I watched [J] spray paint his pumpkin.

once the puffy paint designs were dry, I spray painted my pumpkin gold.

I used mod podge + gold glitter to add a little extra sparkle.

then we opened a bottle of wine and it was time to get to carving.
